Y Felin

Tywyn, Gwynedd

A gorgeously remote water mill with a river rushing by; modern interiors blend with local oak, slate and stone. Rugged Snowdonia is close

Sleeps 8


Such a stunning drive through the Snowdonia National Park, down a long track to this remote water mill with the Dysynni river babbling past the front door. Inside is a symphony of local oak, slate and stone in a modern hi-tech interior with white walls and plenty of games and books; heat comes from an air-source pump and wood for the burner from the farm: you’ll be cosy on the chilliest days. Cooks will be thrilled with the river view from the kitchen window – and the bread making machine. All has been beautifully considered. All three bedrooms are on the ground floor, the master with its own wood-burner and windows on three sides, the smaller double bright and sweet. The bunk room is suitable for children and teenagers; the big bathrooms are fabulous. The owners can point you towards rugged mountain walking and bike rides, farm tours, fell running and sheep dog trials. Long sandy beaches are near, and the air is superb. Return to sit by the flames of the fire pit, and gaze at the stars…

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Ruth Tudor

  • 'Y Felin'- inside..outside... Enjoy 'surround sound', sheep and silence! Take in the stunning views. Walk the springy turf or climb Cadair Idris. Book a bespoke ecological tour, fish on the Dysynni, cycle, or just sit in, relax and rest.
  • The Talyllyn Railway was the world's first preserved narrow gauge railway! Starting at Tywyn 9 miles away,the train runs the scenic route via Dolgoch falls 'en route' to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol. Find out about the events via their website.
  • Beaches and coastline. Stated by the 'Daily Telegraph',Tywyn's beach (9 mls away) is 'a magnificent golden strand stretching 5 miles'. Four miles further on - Aberdyfi is a 'picture postcard' resort, and Fairbourne, a 'Blue flag' beach.
  • Food! Award winning and 'slow food champion' chef Gareth Johns at the Wynnstay Hotel, Machynlleth (9 miles away).
  • Castell -y- Bere, 13thC native Welsh castle in the valley, barely 3 miles away-children will love rambling around the remains.
  • Snowdonia National Park -encompassing, lakes, wildlife,areas of 'special scientific interest', rivers,mountains, including the highest in Wales and England at 1085 metres/ 3560 ft
